Summary
Celebrate this easy way to bring nature indoors and brighten up any home.

By the 10th of January, the holidays are a distant, happy memory. We have put the decorations away for another year.

Today is THE day to get back to tending to, and loving each and every plant in your home. It’s also a day to appreciate just how special and important houseplants are to you. As gardeners, we need to have our hands in some dirt. Caring for them gives us that opportunity. After all, it’s a long way to spring, when we can get out into the garden again.

This holiday was created by The Gardener's Network to remind people after the holidays, that their forgotten houseplants need a little attention and to celebrate beneficial houseplants and to encourage growing houseplants.

Tips for looking after your houseplants:

  • Make sure to place the plant in the right location. Each plant has specific light and temperature requirements, so make sure to research the specific needs of your plant.
  • Water your plants properly. Overwatering or underwatering can both be harmful to plants.
  • Use well-draining soil, and make sure to use a pot with drainage holes to prevent water from sitting at the bottom of the pot.
  • Keep an eye out for pests and diseases, and take action quickly if you notice any issues.
  • Fertilize your plants regularly with a balanced fertilizer, as per the plant requirements.
  • Provide proper humidity and airflow to your plants.
  • Clean the leaves regularly to remove dust, which can block light and cause the leaves to turn yellow.
  • Prune your plants regularly to remove dead or yellowing leaves and promote healthy growth.
  • Rotate your plants periodically so that all sides of the plant get an equal amount of light.
  • Be patient, it takes time for houseplants to grow and flourish.
  • Please keep in mind that different plants have different needs, so it's important to research the specific requirements of your plant before you start caring for it.

Some of the most popular types of houseplants include:

  • Snake plant (Sansevieria)
  • Spider plant (Chlorophytum)
